The re-activated 22nd Iowa, Company F is the galvanizing "alter-ego" of the 7th Kentucky Infantry, Company K. We portray this unit when we are asked to galvanize or just when we just feel like wearing blue for a change.

We are members of the Indiana Brigade, under the command of Colonel Don Heitman, and currently plan on doing about 3 events per year as this unit in the Indiana-Ohio-Illinois area or when needed.

The Officers and NCO's of the 22nd Iowa Infantry, Company F are:
